December 5, 2014: Penn Liberty Bank participated in the 2014 West Chester Old-Fashion Christmas parade. Despite the rain, our employees and their families enjoyed walking in the parade and spreading holiday cheer by giving out candy to many along the parade route! We also sponsored the "Dancing Snowmen" and they were a joy to watch dancing all through the streets. Make sure to tune in to QVC on Christmas day to watch the broadcast!


Our many volunteers waiting to step off!
